Sad Sack the Chef and Other Hits

Here's a handful of fun, mid-century things I saw last week on my antiquery travels: a funny 50's apron featuring one truly cursed cook - a very cool Mister Ice anti-freeze can still sealed and full of "freezit" - a cute little dancing girl is the highlight of an original Red Garter Hotel & Casino ashtray - a thin and very rare sheet of painted glass for a 25 cent mini shine machine, and finally, an empty box for chocolatey, caramel, raisin Moppets candy, featuring some of the most adorable kid illustrations I've ever seen.

I can't pick a fave, but it's probably between Mr. Ice and the Moppets. I want to see that ice cube dude in his own TV show for sure. Mister Ice, Master Criminal! Maybe his secret identity is working as a wholesome family butler? That way you could work the chocolate kids into the show too. The Butler Did It! starring Mr. Ice!

Maybe the BBQ chef should try his luck as a (George) baker.

I love the cat & dog from the apron!

I'm not sure about holding any "gun" 6 inches from my feet, and spraying, though, if it means mini-skirted ladies (or oblong faced aliens in disguise) like me, I guess I can risk it!

>Mister Ice, Master Criminal

Yes please, make this happen ASAP

>Maybe the BBQ chef should try his luck as a (George) baker.

Or a (Ginger) Baker ;)

>if it means mini-skirted ladies

Say no more, just get riskin'!

Thanks for the comments everyone :)
